Track Name: Alpha
Good morning, wake up, go to school
Wear your blazer as is the rule
Watch the teacher teach you sums
Slowly wake until break time comes

A prison life, feudal system like
Must find a smaller boy to strike
But he'll just go and tell on you
Teachers don't know what you go through

Is there more to life than this?
So many classes you try to miss
Same old things on same old days
Fear mixed with a quiet malaise

Good morning, wake up, go to work
Another downtrodden office clerk
Keep your head down, get it done
Take a cigarette for a glimpse of sun

Lunch time quickly comes and goes
Deep in spreadsheets, time moves slow
Colleagues pipe up, nothing new
Just "Did you get that thing I sent you?"

Is there more to life than this?
Sales targets and client lists
Same old things on same old days
Boredom mixed with a quiet malaise

There's more in store for you

Stop dreaming about what life can bring
Set your thinking on higher things
Find something worth living for
There's no reason not to explore

Is there more to life than this?
Is there more to life than this?
Is there more to life than this?
Is there more to life than this?
Track Name: Swept Away
The storm rages
Rain flies down
Shaking the trees
Breaking the leaves
The wind flurries
So furiously
Wind sweep me up
And take me away

Maybe we'll crash into exotic lands
Maybe we'll find new undiscovered worlds
Then fall into somewhere new
Better than where we've been before

The riptide pulls us
Far from the shore
We must stay grounded
Or drift too far
The weathered rocks
Falling apart
Show what we'll be
When the time will come

Maybe we'll crash into exotic lands
Maybe we'll find new undiscovered worlds
Then fall into somewhere new
Better than where we've been before

(I will get swept away, I'll let myself get swept away)

Maybe we'll crash into exotic lands
Maybe we'll find new undiscovered worlds
Then fall into somewhere new
Better than where we've been before
Maybe we'll crash into exotic lands
Maybe we'll find new undiscovered worlds
Then fall into somewhere new
Better than where we've been before
Track Name: City Living
Wound up in city living
Never see the light
Just try to keep up with
The pace of daily life

Flickers past so fast so quick that
If you blink then you will miss it

Bogged down in city living
And dreams of greener fields
Lunch break and a coffee cup
Is all your harvest yields

Flickers past so fast so quick that
If you blink then you will miss it
Running out of sense and money
Wait to see that match being lit

Burn down my city
Burn it to the ground
Life wastes in terror
Waiting for the day
The day when they will
Burn this city down

You're lost in city living
In someone's disguise
Nothing like what you foresaw
In your young childs eyes

Flickers past so fast so quick that
If you blink then you will miss it
Running out of sense and money
Wait to see that match being lit

Burn down my city
Burn it to the ground
Life wastes in terror
Waiting for the day
The day when they will
Burn this city
Burn down my city
Burn it to the ground
Life wastes in terror
Waiting for the day
The day when they will
Burn this city
Waiting for the day
The day when they will
Burn this city down
Track Name: Snow Angel
I will not taint the world with blood
Wanting to end my life
Is no reason to hurt myself
With razor or with knife
I will not be a grotesque puppet
Twirling in the breeze
No need to make a spectacle
To haunt my family's dreams

I will not taint my blood with drugs
For when I meet my end
I wish to keep my senses clear
Not into dreams descend
And so the morning beckons me
So clear and crisp with snow
The winter bites my tears back
As through the trees I go

And lay down by the frozen lake
Lie in the frozen snow
And fully conscious, fully sure
And peacefully I go
Into oblivion
So clear, pure and cold
Into that new transcendency
Beyond what's tainted, old

A clean death, simple, painless, swift
A shiver in the dark
Leaving just an imprint
A snow angel in the park

I'm a snow angel
Just a snow angel
Nothing left of me
Nothing needs to be

Nothing left to invite tears
Nothing left to heighten fears
Nothing left to hurt my friends
Nothing but this calming end

Snow angel
Just a snow angel
Nothing left of me
Just how I want to be
Track Name: Sweet Dreams
Sleep sweet dreams
Find a better world
Sleep sweet dreams
Safety in refuge

This world it overflows with fear
Keeps our minds from being clear
There's still one place they can't control
So train your mind, don't let it go

Treasure your memory, treasure your mind
Take time to relax and unwind

Sleep sweet dreams
To breathe a calmer air
Sleep sweet dreams
It's always peaceful there

We have freedom from media lies
How they like to sensationalise
Our lives really aren't bad at all
We'll learn to stand and not to crawl

Treasure your memory, treasure your mind
Take time to relax and unwind

Sleep sweet dreams
To breathe a calmer air
Sleep sweet dreams
It's always peaceful there

Sleep sweet dreams
And keep them close to you
Sleep sweet dreams
What if your best came true?
Track Name: Spot The Deliberate Mistakes
Laura plays life like a game
The rulebook lost so long ago
Just everyday she rolls the die
She's set her strategy
Takes her piece and move it backwards
I think she's just afraid to win

She won't know anymore
Why she turns back the score
She's just so stuck in her mistakes that she adores

All her life she's playing
Spot the deliberate mistakes
Stuck the gears in reverse
And tore apart the brakes
So I'll be here praying
One day she just admits when she goes wrong

She won't feel a need to change
Her boyfriend sits and stares in wonder
Loving all her flaws
Human beings weren't built that way
We're designed to grow and flourish
We just stagnate when we don't change

It's time to realise
The things she should despise
But she's still so afraid she'll fail if she tries

All her life she's playing
Spot the deliberate mistakes
Stuck the gears in reverse
And tore apart the brakes
So I'll be here praying
One day she just admits when she goes wrong
She just admits when she goes wrong

She goes wrong...
She goes wrong...
Wrong...
Wrong...
Wrong...
Track Name: Slept Through Sunday
The working week is done
I had some lazy days, far too many
I don't want to leave my house
There's nothing out there for me

I don't want to live in lethargy
The stress just gets to me
I'm not proud and I'm not happy
It pains me when I have to say

I slept through Sunday
I slept through Sunday
I slept through Sunday

I wonder if they notice me
Their perpetual absentee
I hope they'd care or wish they'd call
'cause otherwise I mean nothing at all

I don't want to live in lethargy
The stress just gets to me
I'm not proud and I'm not happy
It pains me when I have to say

I slept through Sunday
I slept through Sunday
I slept through Sunday

It wasn't choice
Or some desire
To just stay in
I never wanted
To be living
On a death from within
My week has failed
And I can't bear
To let it sink in
This sign of a life being wasted

I slept through Sunday
I slept through Sunday
I slept through Sunday
Track Name: Trust
As much I'd like it not to be
Life has made it clear to me
Some people live by human nature
When instincts rule and logic's cursed
It's not so hard to be coerced
Even when you know how wrong you are

Trust in mortal man is broken
Trust in feelings slips away
Trusting God has something better
Is all that keeps me going
Trusting you has got me nowhere
Trust me I've had better times
Trust that you would be the one
Never to be the one I hoped you'd be

I know feelings have their failings
I find feelings often flailing
This can't be news to anyone
Yet some perceive emotions truth
Gripping to this plight of youth
Holding back from growing up at all

Trust in mortal man is broken
Trust in feelings slips away
Trusting God has something better
Is all that keeps me going
Trusting you has got me nowhere
Trust me I've had better times
Trust that you would be the one
Never to be the one I hoped you'd be

We cannot grow
We cannot go
Living on instinct alone
Man knows he's more
Man knows he's for
Life based on knowing the truth
We cannot grow
We cannot go
Living on instinct alone
Man knows he's more
Man knows he's for
Life based on knowing the truth
We cannot grow
We cannot go
Living on instinct alone
Man knows he's more
Man knows he's for
Life based on knowing the truth
We cannot grow
We cannot go
Living on instinct alone
Man knows he's more
Man knows he's for
Life based on knowing the truth
Track Name: On The Threshold of Eternity
In despair I sit alone
Head resting in my withered hands
Nothing will console me
Here I sit
On the threshold of eternity

The only sound I hear
The crackling in my fireplace
Quieter, less frequent
It fades into blackness
Here I sit
On the threshold of eternity

Nobody sees what's inside
A damaged floorboard, dirty walls
Once the flame goes out
Neither will I see myself
Here I sit

Trapped opposed to love and joy
A mind succumbed to apathy
Tomorrow will not come for me
Here I sit
On the threshold of eternity

Try to remember when I felt
Some simple kind of pleasure
A happy world cannot meet me
Here I sit
On the threshold of eternity

Lost appetite and cannot sleep
More time awake in life so bleak
If sleep will not come to me
...
Here I sit
On the threshold of eternity

Here I sit
Here I wait
Here I...
Here I...
Here I...
Here I...
Here I sit
Here I rest
Here I wait
Here I sit
Here I rest
Here I wait
Here I sit
Here I rest
Here I wait

Who can save me now?
And who can save me now?
And who can save me now?
So here I sit
On the threshold of eternity
And who can save me now?
Who can save me now?
Who can save me now?
'Cause here I sit
On the threshold of eternity
Track Name: Waterfall
Come out from the cave
See the sunlight shine through the water curtain
This is what you crave
Live a life of freedom, stay alive forever

Must stop
Must sit
Take it in

Bathe in the waterfall
Bathe in the waterfall
A momentary pleasure then toward the light
To saturate yourself in eternal bliss

Look up to the skies
Drenching your face in the living waters
And then rub your eyes
Enjoying blurry pictures of sun-soaked fields

Must stop
Must sit
Take it in

Bathe in the waterfall
Bathe in the waterfall
A momentary pleasure then toward the light
To saturate yourself in eternal bliss

This life, it has its pleasures
But this life is momentary
I know our real dwelling place
Stretches out forever just beyond

So come
Walk out
Live free
Live long
Run far
To life
True life

Bathe in the waterfall
Bathe in the waterfall
A momentary pleasure then toward the light
To saturate yourself in eternal bliss
Bathe in the waterfall
Bathe in the waterfall
A momentary pleasure then toward the light
To saturate yourself in eternal bliss
Track Name: The Gardener
I am the gardener
I put the plants in their soil
Water them every day
So soon I'll enjoy their fruit

I am the gardener
I keep the bugs off the flowers
Insecticides on the leaves
So they can hold their own

I am the gardener
I made a beautiful garden
Sometimes I like to sit
Admiring the things that grow

He is my gardener
He's working hard to sustain me
He gives to me every day
All that I need to survive

He is my gardener
And I bear fruit just to please him
I'm pleased to give to him
'Cause he gave my life to me
